2:05am
dealing with a big financial crisis and the economy was taking a turn for the worse, so the president was looking at hope and change and trying to be positive and bring the economy back. this speech was much different and it sounded more aggressive. the president can't run for election again, so the next four years, you got the sense that he was going to push for social change and you heard him use the word "together" at least seven times in his speech. he's going to be calling on americans for the next four years to be hammering it out with their local congressman and their local senators to try and push issues like gun reform immigration reform and for the first time, we heard a president use the term gay for gay marriage ever in an inaugural speech. so it was a different tone than four years ago. >> brandi hitt live for us. thank you, brandi. some folks said it seemed more like a state of the union address than it did an inaugural. he hit so many policies, whether it was climate change, the gay rights issue, equal pay for
2:06am
equal work, immigration reform. he referenced newtown, which obviously is the gun control battle going on. so he covered a wide range of things. he hit it hard, too. more of a progressive speech than a centrist speech. which some republicans are not going to like. >> you can do that on your second term. later this half hour, we'll take you back to washington for the musicals and look for more highlights later on "gma." later this half hour, we'll in other news, britain's prince harry's military deployment is finished and the prince is heading home. he's been in afghanistan the past four months, flying apache helicopters. and young harry says he fired rockets and missiles that actually killed taliban fighters during his tour and claims he enjoyed his missions. >> it's being used much more widely mainly as a deterrent because the guys recognize the sound and shape of the aircraft. so they know -- when i say the guys, i mean the insurgents.
2:07am
>> and it's interesting. while he was giving interviews, he had to sprint off for a mission in his apache helicopter. british media had agreed to a news blackout while harry was in afghanistan. and ohio getting pounded by an arctic blast that is turning the road into a danger zone. blowing snow is being blamed for a string of chain reaction crashes across the state, including this 86-car pileup near cincinnati. a 12-year-old girl died in that crash. dozens of crumpled cars and trucks were strewn across several highways shutting some down for hours. in addition to insnow and slick roads, bone chilling air still has a big section of the country frozen stiff. windchill watches and advisories are posted from the plains to new england. northern minnesota can expect wild chills at 50 below zero. >> windchills. >> i don't know. i've been up for 24 hours. >> that's all right. >> i feel like i'm chewing on my tongue right now. >> it's your last night, you're

3:35am
taking a turn for the worse, so the president was looking at hope and change and trying to be positive and bring the economy back. this speech was much different and it sounded more aggressive. the president can't run for election again, so the next four years, you got the sense that he was going to push for social change and you heard him use the word "together" at least seven times in his speech. he's going to be calling on americans for the next four years to be hammering it out with their local congressman and their local senators to try and push issues like gun reform immigration reform and for the first time, we heard a president use the term gay for gay marriage ever in an inaugural speech. so it was a different tone than four years ago. >> brandi hitt live for us. thank you, brandi. some folks said it seemed more like a state of the union address than it did an inaugural. he hit so many policies, whether it was climate change, the gay rights issue, equal pay for
